Help!! Whatís this fish?

I recently bought a new fish for my tank. I had asked for a rhino plecostamus and thought nothing of what fish they had put in the bag. Upon returning home and releasing the fish, I noticed it doesnít look much like a rhino plec. Can someone help?

This doesn't look much like a Pleco.

I was thinking itís a catfish or some sort but Iíve no idea what kind. It supposedly is some sort of communal fish but I just want to ensure I know how to take care of it & what it eats

Is it possible to return the fish to the store and let them know it isn’t what you asked for? Then you can get the fish you wanted, and not have to guess at the care requirements of whatever type of fish they gave you.

I think it might be a variety of Otocinclus.
